Dear Phil,

>I'm going to lay claim to finding the largest Drosera in the world
! >During my latest trip with Robert Gibson and Tuan Nguyen >we
located a plant of Drosera erythrogyna that was over 2.5 >metres
tall. Working away with calculations, we estimated that >there were
over 900 leaves and at least 300 flowers. I personally >think this
is rather amazing plant for probably 5 - 6 months growth >from a
tuber. Footage of this plant will hopefully be available on >video
in the near future after being filmed by a Korean film crew.

            WOW! That's all I can say! WOW! WOW! WOW! Any
            pictures available on the net yet of this incredible
            plant?!?! Did you guys herborize this fantastic
            specimen for posterity -- or are you on the
            non-plant-squasher's side?? :):)

Best Wishes,

Fernando Rivadavia Sao Paulo, Brazil
